HOUSTON (April 11, 2017) - Stress Engineering Services, Inc. has been awarded the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) Spotlight on New Technology Award for its Realtime Fatigue Monitoring System (RFMS). The award will be presented on May 1, the opening day of OTC 2017.

The Spotlight on New Technology Awards—a program for OTC exhibitors—showcases the latest and most advanced hardware and software technologies that are leading the industry into the future.

Winning technologies are selected based on the following four criteria:
· New and Innovative: less than two years old; original and groundbreaking
· Proven: through full-scale application or successful prototype testing
· Broad Interest: broad appeal for the industry
· Significant Impact: provides significant benefits beyond existing technologies

The RFMS was developed to provide field measurements of stress and fatigue on drilling risers, wellheads and other subsea systems in near real-time. The RFMS significantly improves riser integrity management by using measured data and advanced algorithms at strategic locations to reconstruct stress and fatigue damage along the entire riser. It integrates this approach into a fully automated, real-time environment.

“We are proud to receive this award in recognition of our RFMS tool, which empowers drilling engineers to make informed decisions in adverse environments, leading to increased safety and efficiency of drilling and production operations for the life of the system,” said Chuck Miller, vice president of Stress Engineering.
